The most important photo ever taken?
The Wellcome Trust is digitising about a million images and documents charting the history of genetics. Among them is an X-ray photograph of DNA taken in 1952, cartoons, personal correspondence of Francis Crick, James Watson, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin, who all played a part in discovering its structure.
